Pepperonis, like Sponge Bob band-aids, mend unsightly surface tears and often appear on elbows after ferocious barroom brawls. Feed on fighting fare with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Italian-American eats at Marco's on Main, in Belleville.
Patrons pass platters full of pizza, pasta, and other provisions at this intimate Italian-American eatery, where salads and spaghettis are served fresh and sharing is encouraged. Start off supper by sipping on Marco's freshly made soups ($2.95 for a cup, $3.50 for a bowl) or munching on its original seed salad, tossed with sesame and poppy seeds, crunchy chow-mein noodles, and sprinkled with house-made dressing ($6.95 for regular).
The pizza menu allows patrons to compose custom symphonies of sausages, vegetables, or tiny cellos ($9.95 for 12"), while specialty pies strike cross-cultural chords with varieties such as the Italian deluxe, the Greek, and the Wisconsin ($14.95 for 12"). Marco's on Main's signature specialty, Beef Marco, is a tenderloin medallion drenched in a provel-based mushroom sauce and served with freshly sautéed mushrooms ($14.95). Award your noteworthy noshing with a Tanqueray or Ketel One trophy, awaiting acceptance on Marco's on Main's martini menu.
